There are a bewildering number of options in lift chairs in terms of size, features, colors, and number of positions, and it can be daunting to try to narrow down the choices. When shopping for a lift chair, it is important to consider the client's height and weight, preferences for where the chair's controls are located, and what features are needed or wanted. Decor and personal preference should also be taken into account.
Lift chairs are a source of independence for people who have trouble rising from a sitting position. The chairs are motorized, and they rise slowly and tip forward slightly to allow the person to go from sitting to standing without having to lift their body weight. They are very useful in private homes, and in nursing homes to help the elderly or disabled have a degree of independence and to keep nursing assistants free to tackle more demanding tasks.
In the past, a chair was just that - a place where you would rest your aching back. Designs were straightforward and simple and you would be foolish to expect anything more from chairs. These days, however, chairs have become art in themselves. Some pieces are so cleverly made that they look like objects of art but double up as comfortable chairs too.
